-term mayor of new york city, has died at the age of 88. the cause of death was congestive heart failure, and that's just coming into us now. andrea, i hear you sighing. >> well, you know, how many i doing? how many i doing? the campaign. he was so controversial. and then, of course, when barack obama was running, he was very not just controversial, but he went over, some said, over the edge and became really alienated from a lot of the leaders. there's no denying the force that he was in new york city. and the remarkable character that he was. >> absolutely. >> all those years. >> he was, donny, the face of new york for so long. >> he is. i grew up in the city. and i love him. and i actually think his way was an early, early precursor to probably the most, if not hillary clinton, loved politician today, chris christie, straight talking, who he is, the embodiment of a region, unapologetically, and obviously stylistically very different but kind of built from the same mold. he was one of the greatest. >> he was another of the generation of these guys, these leaders, that we're losing now
political instincts above all. he was new yorker, former new york city mayor ed koch died early this morning of congestive heart failure. he was 88 years old. after serving in congress, mayor koch was elected to three times in city hall from 1978 to 1989. koch never married and had no children, but as his "new york times" obituary put it, he was survived by new york itself. koch liked to ask people, you know, how am i doing? eugene robinson, what's his legacy? >> well, as a practical matter, he improved the city's finances tremendously. but really what he did was personify the city, in my view, at a time when it could use that sort of larger than life figure. and he kind of -- his ebullience and determination and drive i think gave a boost in and of themselves to a city that was in pretty bad shape. >> michelle, this was a man who was not afraid to infuriate liberals. >> yeah. i think he seemed to delight in it. in some ways he was kind of the prototypical neo conservative, somebody who started on the left, who started out very liberal, and then made his political career being tough on crime

a difficult forecast. if you live up in new england down towards areas around new york city, maybe even new jersey, pennsylvania, pay attention. storm coming your way. possibly the most significant winter storm of the season. right now the storm is just growing. it's in an infancy down in areas of texas providing heavy rain south of san antonio on 35, across 37 and also interstate 10 will be a wet ride between houston and san antonio. all of that rain spreads in the next 48 hours through the southeast including atlanta especially tonight into tomorrow. heavy rain through the carolinas. this is what really catches my attention. this is one of our more reliable extended forecasts. this is where the center of the storm would be on friday. early in the morning. as we go throughout the day, the storm intensifies just off of cape cod. and then at this point, the heavy snow machine would go into work, especially across new england late friday, friday through the overnight into saturday morning. this area of shaded colors here is a foot-plus for almost all of new england. the exceptions being north
